Hard drives, CD drives and DVD Drives of this type are usually "IDE" type which requires a flat ribbon cable (IDE CABLE) and a power supply cable.

There's usually 2 "IDE ports" on a mother board. Each port supports 2 drives (HD, CD, or DVD)... a Master and a Slave drive.

In your case, it's best to install the new drive on the other IDE port if possible. The reason is because you stated that you want to record from one to the other.

You need to locate the 2 ports.... at least -1- is being used for your current HD nd CD drive. If the other is unused you simply need to plug a new IDE ribbon cable into it. Note that the ribbon cable has a red strip on one side that should face pin #1 on the mother board plug, but they're usually "keyed" so you can not plug them in wrong. Set the jumper on the back of the new drive to Master, plug in the IDE ribbon cable, and the 4 pin power supply cable. Mount the drive into the PC in an open slot. Then boot the PC, it should find the new drive.

Hope that helps...

My CD/DVD burner isn't burning at the proper speed. I burned a disc that should have been 66:53, but it came out 66:38 (making the music a little bit fast). I did a burner test, with Exact Audio Copy and...


The speed is determined by the speed of the burner for the type of writable media (disk) you are using and the speed the writable media supports. (For example: I have CD-R disks from years ago that don't write as fast as the CD-R disks I purchased recently.)

The lowest of these two speeds is the max write speed.

Unfortunately, there is a ridiculously large number of disk writing standards which affect write speeds. Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD_recorder

Record errors


If your dvd player only supports dvd+r discs then that is the only way it will record. It will only record once onto the dvd-rw and, since it doesn't support the re-writables, it won't be able to use this function. This is the most likely reason for the first error. The second problem is a little confusing. Is it when you are trying to record on dvd-rs or dvd-rws that it says it can't record? I hope this post was helpful (for the first error, anyway). Good luck! I hope everything works out! Sincerely, Der Strom

Trying to do a backup it says there is not enough disk space available when there is plenty


Probably need more info, such as what utility you're using and where you're trying to back up to. If you?re trying to back up to a CD, make sure it is a fully functional CD-R/W or other writable drive. In most cases folks will try to copy directly onto a CD that is not formatted or to a disc that has been finalized (made readable on other computers), with little or no data on it. Once finalized the "available" disc space is inaccessibly. If you think this is the case, format a new CD-R or CD-R/W disc and try your backup again. If you are trying to back up several directories, such as /My_Documents, you may indeed have too much data for a CD to handle; particularly if you have subdirectories you forgot you had. Try backing up smaller chunks of data to see if that helps. If it does, you can back up several times, or gradually increase the data amount to maximize the disc space usage.

Hitachi 0A59577 320 gb disk drives reporting high pending and reallocated sectors causes system to crash.Vibration 10-200mz


> high pending and reallocated sectors

The electronics inside the disk-drive is encountering "bad" spots on the surface of the disk-drive, and is attempting to allocate some of the "spare" parts of the disk-drive as substitutes for the "bad" parts.

But, it is running-out of "spare" areas to deploy.

What this means is that YOUR DISK-DRIVE IS ABOUT TO FAIL.
Buy an external disk-drive, or buy a bunch of CD-writable or DVD-writable disks, and make a BACKUP copy of your files (E-mail, music),
while you still can access your current disk-drive.

Then, buy a new "internal" hard-drive, and reinstall Windows (you *DO* have the "System Restore" disks, correct?) onto the new disk-drive, and restore your files from your backup.

If your current disk-drive is still under manufacturer's warranty, then exercise the warranty, to get a free replacement. But, make sure that you have copied all your data from the disk-drive *BEFORE* you send it to the manufacturer, because they will take *NO* responsibility for trying to "recover" any of your files.

Why cant I write onto my blank DVD disk I have windows XP and DVD R in my DELL writable drive.Im trying to copy about 1 gig of JPEGS onto the disk. The disc is MAXELL 4.75 GB DVD R. Im using windows XP....


It doesn't matter what name or brand the disc is. All it matters that it is a writable disc. If you had aldready written previous files on that DVD disc and then it was compiled, it wont write again. When the computer requests to compile a disc, say no, otherwise you wont be able to write more data on the same disc. The same goes if you have selected a CD to burn. There are 3 ways to do so. Try copy and paste, drag and drop the file to the DVD icon or CD icon, or right click on the file to be burned and select 'Send to...' choose the DVD drive, (D:), see what happens.

I am coming up with error 10-fc12-0570 on the toshiba satellite a215-s7422 i used the both recovery disk and this was the error code


The error message is telling you that the recovery utility was not able to read the data from the disc correctly, or wasn't able to write it to the hard drive. The problem could be with the disc, the CD/DVD drive or the hard drive.

but usually error 10-FC12-0570 is pertaining to a bad HDD or memory


First, try copying the second disc using another system. If you can't copy it, order replacements from Toshiba Customer Assistance: 1-800-457-7777. If you can copy it, try using the copy to do the restore.
You can try using a third party disk checker to verify the problem is or is not with the hard drive. But since the system is under warranty, you're going to have to arrange to have it repaired anyhow, so it may not be worth the effort to verify whether it's the hard drive or CD/DVD drive. It's probably not the CD/DVD drive since you got all the way through the first disc. Contact a Premier (not regular) ASP for service from here: http://pcrepair.toshiba.com



The best way would be to load the Win Vista discs n format the pc...and reinstall...iam telling this because u have a tried the recovery disk as well....

I know most users will not have the Vista CD with you but the Vista Recovery Boot Cd is available free by Microsoft just google...

Download it burn the Image .iso and run that disc. Since that disc will not restore the OS all it does it lets u run diagnostics on ur HDD and allows u to install the OS. Once disk check is completed and repaired, proceed with the Recovery disks that you have.

thank you
have a nice day

Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.

Hi,
if the device is being recognised, As D:- Or E:- et,c.
right click on the device, and select options from there.
such as open/explore et,c.
If the disk has been written to in any way shape or form, even the smallest file. then the disk being read will be classed as empty.
try a different CD Disk, And try re-installing your CD writing software.
Hope this helps mike @ Compurepair.
